New parents in Salford are getting the chance to use specially adapted running prams to socialise and stay healthy. 


Many new parents will admit having a baby is a wonderful experience, but it can also be exhausting and develop anxiousness and feelings of loneliness and isolation.

To increase physical activity and get new parents socialising, ‘Buggy Movers’ has been set up in Salford funded by NHS Salford Clinical Commissioning Group, Lifecentre and Salford CVS.

Parents and carers are encouraged to walk and jog along routes in Salford with their babies and toddlers in prams.

The bouncing babies are safe inside specially-modified three wheeler prams with thick tyres and safety harnesses. 

Buggy Movers co-founder, Rachel Morris, said: 


“We’ve got some lovely routes in different parts of Salford. It’s about the social aspect, getting together as well as improvements in health and wellbeing, reducing isolation and all of those great things that you really need when you’re a parent.” 

One of the mums, Stacy Broad, said 


“I love it. It’s really good. It gets me out, gets the baby out and gets us exercising. It’s great”. 

The group meet at different locations across the city, including Langworthy Cornerstone, St Philip's Church and at SAYF on Cholmondeley Road.
